Performing songs off her debut, The Mirror is set for release on indie label Thirty Tigers on June 7th, and will showcase Andrews' beguiling voice and intimate lyrics.
Recorded with Scott Solter (Superchunk, The Crooked Jades) in North Carolina and Neilson Hubbard (Glen Phillips, Matthew Perryman Jones) in Nashville, The Mirror nudges Andrews' folksy roots into an effortless, classic-pop sensibility and keen eye for human drama.
Much of the new album's production cost was aided by fan contributions via Kickstarter. You can download the disc's title track now on her website, as well as check out her EPK here: www.jillandrews.com. A video is currently in the works for lead track, "The Mirror" and will be impacting radio in May.
Hailing from Knoxville, TN, Andrews spent five years touring with her band The Everybodyfields. A rock-solid front woman in sundresses and Frye boots, now, Andrews' voice is accompanied by tender piano, shuffling drums and searing electric guitar to support her careful acoustic picking. Wherever she plays, Andrews offers up a vision of herself as a singular, quickly maturing artist with the power to cross lines of genre and geography, taste and time. She is a force-and a voice-to be reckoned with.
